The schools focused on the agricultural and fishing world began the course yesterday in Canary Islands. The Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the regional government opened the school year in agricultural training schools and maritime fishing institutes dependent on the Executive. Specifically, Alicia Vanoostende was present at the Tacoronte agricultural center in Tenerife, where she highlighted that more than 650 students will be trained in these sectors “thanks to a wide curricular offer that includes 14 intermediate and higher level training cycles.”
A total of 331 students will be trained in the agricultural training schools, while 326 will be trained in the maritime fishing institutes. Enrollment remains open for the cycles in which there are places. Alicia Vanoostende placed special emphasis on the importance of starting a new course that “allows training closer to the labor market, thanks to the implementation of dual training”. «This new modality offers the possibility of bringing students closer to the labor market and feeling the needs of their profession to a greater extent, through alternating training between the educational center and the companies in the sector, since at least a third of the training it will be developed in the companies”, he detailed.
As the counselor explained, “guaranteeing the future of our primary sector involves promoting generational change and that is where training has a strategic role.” Vanoostende took the opportunity to welcome the students to this new course and encourage them to complete their training, highlighting its importance in contributing to the economic development of the Archipelago.
The counselor also thanked the teaching staff, highlighting the importance of transmitting to the students the effort and dedication that the agriculture, livestock and fishing sector deserves in the Canary Islands so that it becomes stronger and can continue to be a livelihood for many Canarian families. “We have to put a lot of effort and enthusiasm into giving value to our local product, both to residents and tourists,” she commented. «A close, fresh and high quality product», he nuanced Enrollment is still open in the training cycles in which there are still places available.
In the Canary Islands there are five training centers dependent on this Ministry: three agricultural training schools, located in Los Llanos de Aridane (La Palma), Tacoronte (Tenerife) and Arucas (Gran Canaria); and two maritime-fishing institutes, in Arrecife de Lanzarote and Saint Andrew (Santa Cruz of Tenerife). In the agricultural training schools, intermediate and higher level training cycles are taught for the professional families of agriculture and food industries, as well as professional and occupational courses, while in the maritime-fishing institutes, the intermediate and higher level training cycles that are taught are of the maritime-fishing family, also having a wide range of professional courses.
